5 Dresse thou me in thi treuthe, and teche thou me, for thou art God my sauyour; and Y suffride thee al dai.

10 Alle the weies of the Lord ben mercy and treuthe; to men sekynge his testament, and hise witnessyngis.

12 Who is a man, that dredith the Lord? he ordeyneth to hym a lawe in the weie which he chees.
13 His soule schal dwelle in goodis; and his seed schal enerite the lond.
14 The Lord is a sadnesse to men dredynge hym; and his testament is, that it be schewid to hem.
15 Myn iyen ben euere to the Lord; for he schal breide awey my feet fro the snare.
16 Biholde thou on me, and haue thou mercy on me; for Y am
17 oon aloone and pore The tribulaciouns of myn herte ben multiplied; delyuere thou me of my nedis.
18 Se thou my mekenesse and my trauel; and foryyue thou alle my trespassis.
19 Bihold thou myn enemyes, for thei ben multiplied; and thei haten me bi wickid hatrede.
20 Kepe thou my soule, and delyuere thou me; be Y not aschamed, for Y hopide in thee.

22 God, delyuere thou Israel; fro alle hise tribulaciouns.
